Government plan for bio fuel

The government has launched a consultation on plans to make fuel include five per cent bio fuel.

From April 2008 fuel suppliers would have to ensure that a certain percentage of their sales are made up of bio fuels. And, by 2010, the government wants five per cent of all the fuel sold to come from a renewable source. It reckons this will save a million tonnes of carbon a year.
